This is an excellent choice if you like dark teas! Traditionally in China fully oxidized teas are called “red” teas while the British called them “Black” teas. This tea is very smooth and drinkable! It doesn’t leave you with a dry mouth like most of the black teas you find. The quality is there because its hand-made by a farmer right next to a pristine alpine lake in Central Taiwan called Sun Moon Lake. This tea is similar to a top quality assam black tea but it has a nice unique maltiness. You can enjoy this tea by itself or try adding some milk and honey/sugar if you prefer. This tea is DEEP and the leaves last a long time! Make a DELICIOUS ”Nai Cha” or cold milk tea. This black leaf tea is a real treat.
